What Makes Maart A Perfect Fit For Chiefs?

A Sekhukhune United coach has explained in detail the qualities that makes Kaizer Chiefs’ new signing Yusuf Maart, a good fit at Naturena.

Maart, once on the books of rivals Orlando Pirates, played arguably his best football in the colours of Sekhukhune United for the last two years, earning several Bafana Bafana call-ups in the process.

The midfielder’s breath-taking performances at Sekhukhune captured the attention of several eyes, proving that he has what it takes to battle it out with the big boys in South Africa’s topflight.

But what would the Cape Town-born midfielder offer the reinvented and revamped Amakhosi side, dawning on a new era under Arthur Zwane?

“With the evolution of the game if you look at his qualities as a footballer, he covers a lot of ground and distance on the pitch because of his high anaerobic capacity,” Thabo Senong Babina Noko’s assistant coach told the Siya crew.

“Yusuf takes a lot of shots from outside the box, he can make a lot of forward passes, over the top, so he helps the team to defend very well because he works very hard in the defensive and attacking phase.

“So I don’t see Yusuf failing at Chiefs and I’m hoping he adapts and shine as soon as possible. He is very committed as he gives 110 percent at training and in matches, also he does a lot of individual analytical work, and gets clips of himself after matches and training so that he can always analyse himself critically and try to improve some areas and aspects of his game where he lacks.”

Senong added that Maart adapts very quickly to different environments, to different tactical situations and formations.

“So by Maart being an adapter, I don’t see him struggling to adjust to playing within the Kaizer Chiefs group and also play for a big club of Chiefs’ calibre because of his mentality, he is a professional, works very hard and he is an international midfielder, he comes from Bafana Bafana,” concluded Senong.
